Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a sloping line that curves up on the left side for the eagle's eyebrow. Sketch lightly at first. When you get the shape right, darken the line. Make the line for the eyebrow thicker and darker.
Step 2: Under the eyebrow, draw a half-circle for the eagle's eye. Make the outline of the eye thick so that it stands out. Add a bit of extra shading on the left side to make the eye pointier.
Step 3: Inside the eye, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of the eagle's eye, draw a big dot for the pupil. Draw the pupil big enough so that the top touches the eyebrow.
Step 4: Starting at the eyebrow, draw a long, curved line for the top part of the beak. This line should stretch to the left and then curve downward. The longer you make this line, the bigger the eagle's beak will be.
Step 5: Continue drawing that same line toward the left to create the eagle's mouth. Curve it so that it creates a sharp, pointy tip on the left side. Make it a bit wavy in the middle. It should stretch right as far as the eye.
